"Enjoying your meal?"

Annual gossipfest lunch yesterday with Neil Tennant and Mark Ellen with much talk of "The Queen". Apparently somebody offered Her Maj a copy of the DVD recently and it turns out Buckingham Palace only has a VHS player. Neil says that according to a picture he's seen they've got convector heaters as well. Have been fantasising about this huge palace packed with slightly out of date household kit: Bush transistor radios, pedal bins, elephants' foot umbrella stands, those ashtrays that used to be on metal poles, radiograms....The waiter was hovering when Neil said "At Elton and David's wedding David Walliams asked Prince Andrew if his mother ever watched Little Britain." The waiter looked up and said "I'm not going to finish cleaning this table till you finish this story."
